EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

Howie Roseman "does an outstanding job" in managing the salary cap. Tom Gamble is a "heck of a football guy. " You don't need to read between the lines to know how Chip Kelly views the Eagles' top two personnel executives. Roseman has spent the last decade - five years as general manager - working to establish his credentials as a "football guy" after not coming up the scouting ranks in the traditional manner and transitioning over from the business side of operations. And Kelly effectively put him back in that box when he was asked Monday about his involvement in player contracts.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ed Marynowitz's first seven months working for the Eagles overlapped with Andy Reid's final season in Philadelphia, giving Reid enough exposure to the team's new vice president of player personnel that the longtime coach praised Chip Kelly's decision to promote him. "Ed's on the rise, boy," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL's annual scouting combine. "He's a good one. I think it was a great choice by Chip. " In May 2012, the Eagles made seven front office transactions.

INDIANAPOLIS - Andy Reid spoke recently with Howie Roseman, Reid said yesterday, and "Howie's doing good. " Maybe you read that sentence, shrugged your shoulders and said, "eh. " But for the Eagles' information-starved media corps, which has not laid eyes on the former general manager since the Jan. 2 restructuring of the team's front office, this was a gleaming, rare pearl of information. The way most teams operate, yesterday's opening of the NFL Scouting Combine would have been a day to talk to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly about how he sees his role in the draft process, now that Kelly has full personnel control.

In a scene that won't be repeated, the man in charge of the Eagles' player-personnel decisions huddled with some media members at Lucas Oil Stadium during last year's NFL scouting combine and spoke at length of his affection for and commitment to the team's No. 1 quarterback. Howie Roseman went on and on about Nick Foles that day, about an up-and-coming quarterback whom the Eagles had an obligation to support, and things certainly have changed since then. No Eagles representative is scheduled to speak at next week's combine.

I THINK WE ALL can agree that Chip Kelly is a pretty good football coach. He proved that at the University of Oregon and has proved it again in his first 2 years with the Eagles, resuscitating a four-win team and racking up back-to-back 10-6 seasons. What we don't yet know, but are about to find out, is what kind of talent evaluator Kelly is. Many people assume that a good coach also is a good judge of football flesh. But the two don't necessarily go hand in hand. They're two very different jobs, two very different talents.

It's really an honor and I'm sure all of you shared my excitement when The Inquirer announced last week I had been promoted to Senior Executive Columnist for Sports Content. There's nothing like a new title to make a guy feel important, and I'd also like to congratulate colleagues Bob Brookover, the new Vice President for Sports Columnizing, and Mike Sielski, who steps into the role of Director of Sports Opinion/Columns. There's no doubt in mind that we will work together seamlessly to help the department achieve its goals with the structure now in place.

When Ryan Grigson left the Eagles in 2012 to become general manager of the Indianapolis Colts, his departure created a hole at the top of the Eagles scouting department that general manager Howie Roseman opted not to fill. "We're going to go with the people we have," Roseman said at the time. "Through this process when Ryan left, we kind of went with the people we had here, and we added some people that we feel really good about, and we like the dynamic as it's currently set, and we're going to go with it. " What Roseman liked best about the new dynamic was that he had finally consolidated total control over both the scouting and the football administration departments.

Chip Kelly spent 26 days searching for a personnel executive before promoting Ed Marynowitz, who was in the building all along. The Eagles named Marynowitz vice president of player personnel on Thursday, putting the 30-year-old Media native into the chief player evaluation role that opened after the front office shake-up in the week after the season ended. Marynowitz received a three-year contract. "Ed is someone who has really impressed me going back to my interview process with the Eagles two years ago," Kelly said in a statement.

Chip Kelly got his man - after Brian Gaine interviewed and decided to stay with the Texans, after Scott Fitterer interviewed and decided to stay with the Seahawks, after Chris Ballard, Jon Robinson, Eliot Wolf, Brian Gutenkunst, and Joe Hortiz declined to interview with the Eagles or their teams declined, and after Chris Polian and Chris Grier interviewed before eventual hire Ed Marynowitz had. And those were only the candidates to be Kelly's second-in-personnel-command...

PHOENIX - Given the circumstances, this was probably the option that made the most sense all along. The Eagles needed someone to run personnel for Chip Kelly who knew what Kelly wanted - the coach has exacting player specifications. They needed someone who would not chafe at being subordinate to Kelly, and someone who would be able to forge a working relationship with demoted general manager Howie Roseman, who is still hashing out contracts and minding the salary cap. Ed Marynowitz, named vice president of player personnel yesterday, fit all those criteria.

The official Chip Kelly offseason scoreboard shows that his actions hold a significant lead over his words and, in all likelihood, the verbal game won't even attempt a comeback until late March. In typical fashion, the big play from the Eagles head coach came fast and furious. When Howie Roseman wielded his general manager power by firing vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble immediately after the season ended, Kelly's counterpunch resulted in a bloody TKO. Owner Jeffrey Lurie stripped Roseman of all his personnel duties, making it clear that the head coach ruled the decision-making kingdom at One NovaCare Way. That was by far the loudest and most meaningful action by Kelly since the Eagles played their last game of 2014 and he has not spoken a single public word about it. Given the way things work in the silent society shared by so many NFL teams and coaches, it's possible - even probable - that Kelly will not answer any questions about the Eagles' internal power struggle until the March owners meetings in Arizona.
